Facts about Ethiopia, Ethiopia Facts

Ethiopians also have a distinct system for counting the hours of the day. They feel it is less confusing if the clock starts when the day does, for reasons that are difficult to refute. As a result, dawn is at 1 o'clock and sunset is at 12 o'clock. The 12-hour night clock then kicks in. So, while purchasing bus tickets or other forms of transportation, make careful to inquire as to whether the departure time is in Ethiopian or Western time.
